Have you ever lived in another country (other than your current residence)?

    Have you ever lived in another country (other than your current residence)?

    I lived abroad in Egypt and found that it has truly changed my life. My mind of more open to other cultures, I see people as just people versus a culture or race (even more so) and I am more independent. I also have found myself craving more global news. It seems I finally understand there is a world beyond the one I see every day! Has anyone else had this experience? Was your experience different? Are you curious about living abroad someday if you have not?

    Other than vacations, I never had the chance or blessing of living in another country. There is still hope.

    I lived in Germany as a child and then as an adult. I loved Europe and hope to one day go back and visit.

    I lived in Tonga and Samoa for a few years, and it has opened my mind to other cultures and traditions. I now live in Hawaii, which is multicultural and enjoy the diversity. My son lives in Egypt with his wife and four children. I always look at news and articles about the places I have lived and that my children live. I think it is good to experience living in other countries than the one you are raised in. I can't imagine never tasting some of the wonderful foods that I have eaten in their native countries. It has been a fun adventure which continues to this day.

    No. I have never even travelled overseas, sorry I went  to Tasmania in 1964 and loved it.  ..   Alan Nelson

    I lived in 33 countries and I probably would bore everyone listing them all. I was born in France but my heart belong to Asia. I settled down in Thailand 17 years ago and if you really want to know why, have a look at my blogs http://phuket101.blogspot.com and http://krungthep101.blogspot.com (Krungthep is the original name of Bangkok).
    I don't think i will ever go back to France except for holiday.
    Happy New Year everyone!
